5 SOLDIERS: The Body Is The Frontline - Birmingham Rep
Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.
Description

A thrilling and humane portrait of army life telling the stories of five men and women serving on the front line. Kay's trademark intense physical and athletic dance theatre has earned five star reviews, a nomination for Best Modern Choreography in the National Dance Awards and topped the Best Dance of 2015 charts in The Observer, The Guardian and The Independent.

Deeply realistic, stark and thrilling, 5 SOLDIERS offers no moral stance on war, but instead questions what it is that we ask of our soldiers and explores how the human body remains essential to war, even in the 21st century.

Performances will be followed by a post-show discussion with the company and local military representation.

The Saturday performance will be preceded by a short dance work made by local community members in response to 5 SOLDIERS.
